Trigger Point Myotherapy

Trigger point myotherapy is a noninvasive therapeutic modality for the relief and control of myofascial pain and dysfunction. The goal of treatment is the client’s recovery from or a significant reduction in myofascial pain. The treatment goal is achieved through a systematized approach. Treatment consists of trigger point compression, myomassage, passive stretching, and a regime of corrective exercises. Success may be measured subjectively by the level of pain reduction experienced by the client and objectively through increased range of motion, strength, endurance, and other measures of improved function. Trigger point myotherapy relies heavily on client-therapist interaction, including verbal and nonverbal elements. The myotherapist encourages the client to be personally responsible for their improvement, with attention to such factors as nutritional intake, stress, proper exercises, mechanical abnormalities, and other physical components. These elements protect the client from delayed diagnosis, delayed treatment, or contraindicated treatment, which are the concerns of first order. Trigger point myotherapy is an integrating approach to myofascial pain and dysfunction.

Silas Littlefield

Silas believes that everyone deserves to feel safe and at home in their own bodies. As  a transgender man (female to male), he personally appreciates the importance of receiving continued body work for our own unique and continued authentic transformation. He graduated an 850 hour training for massage in Portland Oregon, at East West College Of The Healing Arts in 2011, where he focused his studies on Deep tissue and Structural integration. He is also trained in Swedish, Thai, and Trigger point therapy modalities. Since graduating, Silas has worked in a medical massage clinic, working with doctors and clients to rehabilitate acute and chronic injuries. He also has had his own private practice for over five years, where he grew his intuition in body work. His work is focused and therapeutic by nature, with plenty of space for intuitive restorative movements. Silas believes his purpose as a massage therapist is to hold space for the body’s inherent knowledge of how to heal itself and to find more restful states of being.
